Playground romances and middle-school flirtations used to be confined to names scrawled on the inside of notebooks and messages passed back and forth in class, but no longer. In the age of social media, it’s less about the relationship and more about broadcasting it to all your followers with with status updates, inserting the word “taken” in your Instagram bio, and tagging your beloved in a post filled with heart emoji.

A Vine user who goes by the name Hood Jam Connie took things a step further when she recorded a video for a paramour with choreographed winking, lip-licking, and some general head-nodding.

But the 10-year-old’s digital love note reached much further than just her beau, Hood Jam James. In fact, Connie’s awkward attempt at flirting, which currently has over 10 million loops, has turned into Vine’s latest crazy meme.

Let’s be real, guys: Hood Jam Connie is our Vine inspiration.
